“In the month of September 1920 alone, the first month after the 19th Amendment became law, the League of Women Voters of Alabama reported ‘123,000 white women and 100 black women had registered.’ ... Although it was a national law, Alabama did not ratify the 19th Amendment until 1953. ... This year also marks the 70th year of the founding of The League of Women Voters of Greater Tuscaloosa.”
